Reviews


Just watch the small ones on the balconies!. It was wonderful! Would go back in a heartbeat! There are different size units you can rent, so perfect for families! It includes a full kitchen and washer and dryer in the ocean front rooms! There are units to accommodate families with several children. No airconditioning in the ocean front locations, but the balcony doors open up and the wind blows right thru.As close to the ocean as you can get We loved this location! The surf was right below our balcony! We went to sleep to the sound of the ocean.



. Thus, the level of noise was quite high. Our condo had mountain view and faced a frequented road.Nice place The condo was nice and tidy, equipped with everything needed, including free wireless internet access.



. Could say we had a nice restful Hawaiian vacation. Poor form. Jack hammers were under one of our second floor condos and it was uninhabital from 8-4 M-F. The rooms were very nice but, it can’t make up for the fact that they should not have rented them at all that week of a planned sewer repair.Sewer repair, jack hammers under our rooms.



. Don’t pay to see waterfalls, there are plenty to see for free. Try roadside stands. Candy bars are a bargain on the island. Bongo Bens is great. Bubba Gump has great portions and a huge sampler platter. Off days are bargain days. in Kailea-Kona - that’s when the cruise people come in. Don’t shop at the shops on Wed. We shopped at the grocery store for breakfast, drink and snack items. Drink water and try splitting meals. Travelers tip on saving a few bucks Food will generally cost you $10 to $20 each. If you are short on cash, this place is cost effective. Would not stay here again unless the rooms are renovated. This general Kailua-Kona area is most definitely the place to be for swimming, snorkeling and eating. We moved on the fourth day to a partial ocean view room in building 6 and even though it was closer to the road noise, the view was spectacular and the breeze was 10 times better. The rooms are at least 30 yrs old with original bathtubs, cabinetry, and dingy carpet. There was little breeze (August 2009), and the room needed major renovating.Great location but rooms need lots of TLC We stayed in a back building three days, next to the noisy birds.



Pots and pans were outdated Carpet was dirty.Really not impressed One we had book for a king bed and had a Queen, Second the sofa bed was out and service, we had to put the mattress on the floor, they repair it for thr last night.



Not impressed when checking in they said for a 7 night stay they would change the sheets and clean the room the 4th night never did change the sheets.



. Kona and the rest of the Island is the most beautiful and fun place we have ever been by far. We also learned this cost is well worth it. We learned that if you have a family of five and need a two bedroom setup (condo suite) be prepared to spend at least $550-600 per night for reasonably comfortable and somewhat private accomodations on the Island. This was our first Hawai’i experience. Also it seemed the locals hang on the south end of this shore resort to surf. If your a tent camper you may find this place suitable. This is a crash pad for the very active folks who do not need a lot of comfort and are looking to take in the sites 16 hours a day and sleep like a log the other 8. If your looking for a comfortable place to sit and chill a little and take in the view go elsewhere. To stay here you need to dump your stuff and head to the beach or someplace else that you are happy with. Sat there soaking wet and bailed to another location. Humidity was through the roof when we arrived and room was unbearable. No AC in ocean front rooms. Very disapointed upon arrival.For low budget travelers who want to hang with the native Islanders.



. There are stores such as Costco, Wallmart, Safeway and Target all in the Kona area. Also talk with salespoeple in the stores for ideas where to go. They have good maps of all areas for getting around and seeing the sights. Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay Upon arrival in the Kona airport pickup two or three of the booklets available in the arrival part of the airport. Our unit was maintained satisfactorily and was very clean. Condo show wear and tear of time but were very acceptable in all areas. Staff were all friendly, knowledgable and helpful. It has units on both sides of the road but this was not a problem. Condo located out of the main part of Kona but was easy to get to and leave to the main travel roads.Good location for visit.



. Two times I have stayed here I had partial ocean view and my room was across the street from the ocean but I could hear and see the ocean through open glass patio door when cars weren’t passing. Room and surrounding grounds were clean and well maintained. Very friendly staff. Had a hard time leaving. Love this place.Love this place This is the second time I’ve stayed here.



. No, there were no roaches, but a beautiful Gold Dust Day Gecko greeted us every morning outside our door. That said, they do regularly treat for indoor insects, but I’ve had many trips to the islands an no hotel was ever completely free from an extra harmless roommate or two. Keep in mind, this hotel is located on an island in the North Pacific and many people keep their doors and windows open. I have read other people’s reviews about finding bugs in their room. The building is not brand-new, but the room was very clean. No daily maid service, but they provide clean towels every four days and our apartment had a full kitchen with all the pots, utensils and dinnerware you could possibly need.Simple, clean, affordable Very simple, no frills, no unnecessary expense place to stay.



. It is hard to find parking! If you are staying in the Waikiki area, I would recommend taking a shuttle from the airport and walking the whole time. The courtyard view will have you staring into someone else’s hotel room! If you are renting a car, the valet parking is worth it. The only thing I longed for was a bagel and cream cheese, but you can’t have everything! Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay I recommend the mountain view. They had waffles, toast, cereals, fruit, juices, coffee, muffins, and hard boiled eggs. The pool is small, but adequate, the fitness room had great equipment and the continental breakfast was good. The hotel is easy walking distance (3 blocks) from the beach and the main shopping strip by Waikiki. From the moment I walked in the door, they were eager to make me welcome and comfortable.Great hotel, great customer service! I was impressed with the new beautiful, modern, decor and the great customer service of this hotel.



...Turtles were everywhere....Awsome condo Loved the Ocean Front room.



. It is a drive - but worth it. Travelers tip on local attractions The South Point is a must. The kitchen was great for breakfast and to pack a cooler for lunch.Nice place Perfect for a getaway when you don’t need to spend much time in the hotel room.



. You could visit awesome beaches that are virtually deserted. Get a 4X4, you won’t regret it. Rent your snorkel sets and boards just across the street from a guy in a little shop adjacent to the main office - he’s great and the prices can’t be beat. Travelers tip on recreational activities great boogieboarding just 1 mile south at White Sands beach. Otherwise, full kitchen certainly helps and the location is great (away from the noise and traffic, yet still close enough to stores and restaurants). There’s no smoking - even on the balcony; for a one week stay you get a single visit from the housekeeping. consequently, the bedroom is always hot and one can sleep in the living room only wearing the earplugs (because of the noise). No central A/C, just a noisy wall unit mounted in the living room. The balcony faces the courtyard.Just adequate so called "mountain view" rooms don’t really have much of the view since the only window facing the mountains is in the bedroom.



We’ll go back for trip number three ASAP!. Although the place is showing some age, there are just too many reasons to stay there: Amazing ocean front view from the lanai, sea turtles on the beach by the lava tidepools, prime surfing spot with relentless surfers to watch, perfect sunsets behind the palm trees and all the comforts of home.Return trip We visited this condo 2 years ago, and returned on purpose.



. We did not get much sleep because of the noise factor. the main objection was the noise during the night from motorcyles and cars as well as birds during sunup. The rooms were clean and spacious.Nice but Not Nice The hotel itself so OK.



. The reception staff were very pleasant. We booked for one night only and it may be that if we had been there longer, we would have found other delights. It was difficult as we arrived late and could not get anything for supper or breakfast without a long walk. As a self catering condo for a couple it was adequate but it was 3 miles from the restaurants etc so not easy to get back and forth in the evening.Only OK Everything was OK but somewhat grey - and although there was an ocean view, in our block, it was accross the main road.



. Bedroom was hot. Air conditioning only cooled living room. Tile grout was dirty.Not for Old Folks No elevators, had to climb to 3rd story with a damaged hip and knee.



. can’t beat it... Minutes from the condo and best store ever! Great deli, fresh seafood, great beers. We miss the sea turtles and coming to the grills every night! Travelers tip on shopping DUDE!! Shop at the KTA in Keauhou. It’s no luxury hotel- it’s comfortable apartments with a fantastic view, centerally located with a great staff and fun people to meet.We love this place! We wanted a home away from home, and that’s exactly what we got.



. The coffee is terrific and the view can’t be beat. Travelers tip on dining Try Java Rocks coffee shop of off Ali’i Rd. We would definitely stay there again.Terrific Condo/Resort Couldn’t have been happier with our at stay at the Castle Kona Bali Kai.



We saw. Travelers tip on recreational activities If you want to see Sea Turtles, go to Two-Step Beach next to Pu’uhonua o Honaunau National Park. If you don’t mind roaches and are a sound sleeper (or want use ear plugs), its a good price, otherwise I would look elsewhere. The ocean front room had a great view, but because the rooms were not Air Conditioned, we had to sleep with open windows and the sound of the waves hitting the beach all night and road traffic made it hard to sleep. Also, we had requested a room with a king sized bed and a sleeper sofa but got a sleeper sofa and a full sized bed. When we requested another room without roaches we were told "there weren’t any". The first and biggest problem is that our room had roaches (within minutes of our arrival, they started crawling out of the stove).Read This Before Booking We just returned from staying there in late May of 2009.



. Wish we had more free time to relax in the condo. Very nice accomodation.Very Pleased Nice view.



. I’ll never make that mistake again. Travelers tip on getting the most out of your stay One thing I screwed up was our flight home was at like 11;00 pm and our condo check out was 12:00am-at booking I didn’t see the big time difference that we would have to live in rental car. Security was tight and staff showed lots of Aloha. So despite the reviews we decided to try Bali Kai again,The room 224 was perfect-clean,well equipped, The bar-b-que by the ocean was charcoal years ago now it Jenair gas and there staff cleans and keeps the grills spotless.Condo Bali Kai Aloha I was amazed at the poor reviews Bali Kai was receiving when I checked the Kona reviews,cause I’ve stayed there a few time many years ago (15 years)and it was great then.



Very Satisfiedf d.



.Nice location Our stay was comfortable and I’d consider staying there again.
